BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Four more Jamaicans charged in the U.S. in what authorities say is a multimillion-dollar lottery scam have pleaded not guilty in federal court in North Dakota.

No immediate trial date was set Tuesday for Jason Jahalal, Kazrae Gray, Dahlia Hunter or Xanu Morgan.

The four were among eight suspects extradited from Jamaica to Bismarck last week to face charges in what authorities say is a scam that bilked at least 90 mostly elderly Americans out of more than $5.7 million. The four others in the group pleaded not guilty last week.

A total of 15 people each are charged with 66 total counts of conspiracy, wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering. The man who authorities allege masterminded the scam, Lavrick Willocks, pleaded not guilty in January.
